Homemade Liqueurs Make for A Well Rounded Restaurant

Last week, I ventured into Bibiana Osteria Enoteca for a post theater libation, eager to try some of their homemade liquors. I had the Bibiana, a luscious blend of prosecco and fresh peach purée, while my company sipped on the Amalfitano - homemade limoncello with Italian lemon soda. Both were tasty, but the Amalfitano would likely be better as summer drink, than on a frosty winter night. With the wide selection of specialty cocktails, it is likely you will a few drinks that suit your taste buds.

My guest and I marveled at the inside decor, that is both upscale and relaxed at the same time. The partially open kitchen allows curious diners to catch a glimpse of the kitchen staff, under the direction of Chef Stefinelli, at work.

And work they did. In addition to preparing dinner for those in the dining room, the kitchen kindly sent out a nicely plated Baccala'. It sat atop a base of crushed potatoes and mushroom compote. The array of textures complemented one another well. Had I actually been hungry, I would have liked to try the Scarola or Uovo.

Whether your looking for authentic Italian liqueurs, a pre-theater dinner, or their 'Velocissimo' business lunch, you'll want to visit Bibiania yourself and see all this vibrant osteria e enoteca has to offer.

Bibiana is located at New York Ave, NW. They are open for lunch and dinner during the week, and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays.
